“Ceremonial Robes” by Rodney Thompson

The public is invited to the opening reception for the art exhibit Ceremonial Robes by Rodney Thompson. These are ceremonial garments for the shamans, magicians, and wizards of our time: The creators of electronic wonders, the magical boxes that entertain and pacify the populace, insuring domestic tranquility. The robes are made of paper, electronic parts, and materials that are disposable like the cherished electronics we discard and replace over and over, insuring our continued allegiance to the priesthood of technology.
